Apropos nothing in particular,
great to see Gareth Bale enjoying success in the Champions League semi-final.

Despite the obvious direction of motion frozen in the sporting context, hard not to see him being drawn up to the heavenly light 😉 In fact, what with his foreground scale against the crowd, and the tiers in the stadium, not so much spot-the-ball as stairway-to-heaven.
[And success at the other end of the scale, well done to John Still and Luton Town for regaining their football league status.]
[Finally – you couldn’t write this stuff – Gareth’s season did have the fairy tale ending he deserved.]
